We were really tired and needed a place to stay. Shingletown is not a city or even much of a town. This place is back in the woods and the approach was kind of spooky, but I have to say I was favorably impressed. You have to furnish your own sheets, towels, etc. We had our own sleeping bags and pillows. The stores back up the road 2 miles have good breakfast and coffee. The cabins were nice and clean and we enjoyed a campfire with the folks in the neighboring cabins. The only drawback is the walk to the showers/restrooms although there were enough and very clean. There is a coin laundry on the premises. The proprietor seems to be a good man, very religious and patriotic.
